New arrivals

True poppies are opening, both the old-fashioned red and those with paler stems and leaves that are a very odd deep purply pink, with black spots and quite a sheen. Tomatoes have blossoms for the first time. Cypress vine has germinated, and it took a long, long time to do so. Did I soak the seeds? All shades of delphinium / larkspur are opening. The cassia has reappeared. There are flower buds on the butter-dream oleander and on the pink one. These are the only two remaining in our yard; the other pink ones succumbed to the same blight or whatever it is that has killed everybody else's old ones.
